The deal is for the global sim card and comes with 1 month of premium services but you should downgrade everything to the free plan which includes 200 mins, 500 texts & 200MB per month. You can add an extra 500mb of data per month by adding Freedom Friends here:
You will need to install the Freedompop app and voice calls are VOIP and text are made through the app and uses your data allotment.
The sim that you get is a 3UK sim from England and the list of supported countries are here:
I got in on this deal when it was $0.99 so this current deal is only luke warm but can be good for those that travel to the supported countries and only is satisfied with using only Data. I've tested the sim in the US and it runs on the AT&T network with HSPA+ speeds only but it is fast enough. Haven't had a chance to test in the other supported countries but some have reported success in some of the European countries.
Shipping within the US only so you will need a US address. Canadian credit cards may be accepted. Freedompop is sneaky about charging for extras so DOWNGRADE all services to the free plan immediately after signup.
Here are some instructions to downgrade:

Unfortunately, Canada is not one of the supported Countries but you can select a Canadian phone number.
EDIT: So I decided to try to call my 604 number from my landline but it would not connect. Got the message "Your number cannot be completed as dialed..." I don't have an LD plan so I'm guessing the number is long distance despite having the YVR area code. Tried from my cell (only have Province Wide Calling), and got the message that I might incur LD charges. Sent a text (Canada Wide Text) to the 604 number and it went through without any charges. I was also able to call the 604 number using Hangouts. Conclusion: The number might still be an LD number despite having a local area code. Note: This was done through WiFi. There is still no service in Canada.
